My Ending Felt in a Moment

Updated on August 24, 2015
Walking on phantom legs
Walking on phantom legs

Life has its own movements

Walking on phantom legs mourning what is not mine
Sleeping suspiciously, sipping from slicky sweet ladel of time.
A sneaking smile, her lover the Nile a moon season never seen again.
His clothing of autumn, tears of spring stopped silently the asp's hungry sing.

At the end what really is what?

Oh if my hypocrisy burn too great and my bitter herbs are too hard to hate,
Then walk me slowly by garden's gate--a glimpse, a look, a wink of moment past.
Chanting a deaf spirit's ear moment in moment, year into year.
Death still arises from wrinkled slumber to rape, to take one last ride.


At my demise.

I stand on borrowed friend's time tears dripping on a fading time said to be mine.
Hearts evil or good enter the darkness of darkness where unfitting souls can rest.
A dog's one nature is softer, surer than riches of a braggart's pomp.
My back feels the damp wall--wondering in twinkle, sleeping in wrinkle, dancing without a tune.

Is death a dragon or just a sigh?
Is death a dragon or just a sigh? | Source

All things in wisdom.

A sonnet so sad a tongue froze in phrases
Never quoting love, hate, hymns or blazes.
Gazing as a fool watching a marriage of inconsistent minutes.
His power, her power, a world crumbling 'neath a carnival token.

Water'd brooks sing dry while wingless angels fly
A poison drips vainly.
Sunset darkness endless time.
Holding at last obscurity's love just mine.
Only mine.

Her stolen smile
Her stolen smile

      Gypsy Rose Lee,

      Thank you, sweet friend, for this lovely comment. I truly appreciate it. I have not heard from you in awhile. I hope your life is happy and peaceful.

      I posted a notice in the General Forum section about I may not publish as many hubs for awhile due to having a heart cath three weeks ago. I had congestive heart failure and the doctors drained 57 pounds of fluid off of my heart. The surgeon told me that I was using only 9% of the heart muscle instead of 55%, so I have to take it easy, not get into stressful situations or exert myself and stay on this very strict diet.

      So I am glad that YOUR comment was the one I was blessed to leave a comment on Saturday, Nov. 7.

      Do stay in touch with me and always know that I am very fond of you as my friend and a follower in that order.

      Dear bravewarrior,

      You are a very sweet friend, writer and follower. I am glad that you liked this piece. Sad and depressing went hand-in-hand in the start and then it smoothed out to a sad feeling of farewell.

      I cherish our friendship and your presence in my life.

      Wow, you blew me away Kenneth! I wasn't expecting. Brilliant, creative, vivid, and thought-provoking.

      Wish we still had our buttons. I'd hit them all but funny.
